Q: How did you become interested in the JFK assassination?
I saw the Zapruder film at a friends house in 1971 and knew there was a conspiracy.
Q: What made you write The Man From 2063?
I always wanted to write a book about the JFK case. I decided to combine a time travel premise with factual data on the assassination along with fictional characters to make an entertaining book.
Q: Who do you think killed JFK?
Based on 40 years of research I believe rogue CIA agents, anti-Castro Cubans and Mafia people combined to kill JFK. I think Oswald was the patsy for the conspiracy.
Q: What did you think about Oliver Stone's movie JFK?
Overall I thought it was very well made. I don't agree with everything in the movie. I do agree there was a conspiracy.
Q: Why would the US government cover up the truth behind the assassination?
Probably because the people who killed JFK were connected with powerful people or agencies of the government.
